Girl Scout Troops of Plainfield: Tell Patch Readers How to Get Your Cookies

If you don't have a relative or friend whose child is selling them, where do you go to get your fix? And take our poll below on which is the best Girl Scout cookie sold.

Editor's note: Looks like I might be a little late coming to the game as today's the end of the cycle where the Girl Scouts actually take orders. However, some cookie moms are still taking orders. And I am getting contact info so we can find out where they'll be selling them at stores on future dates and if you can order via email.

It's Girl Scout cookie time. How do I know this? Because my 8-year-old niece just hit me up for my annual donation.

I don't mean this in a sarcastic way because I actually have a soft spot in my heart for Tagalongs, Thin Mints, Somoas and all the rest. I sold them myself as a kid for many years, way back when they went for just 50 cents a box and you took orders door-to-door -- by yourself -- and delivered them the same way.

But I digress. My point is that one day my niece will no longer be hawking the goods and then where will I get my GS cookie fix? I don't work in an office where people sell them for their kids, there are no children on my block and what are the odds I'll be at on the one day the girls are selling them there?

There's something weirdly irrestible about those brightly hued boxes, even if they do cost $4 these days and hold just 12 or 15 cookies. And I know I'm not alone on this count.

So Girl Scout troops of , this is you big chance. Send me your troop number and a phone number and/or email address and I'll get the word out to Patch readers. They will be the easiest sales you'll ever make.

Send your info to karen@patch.com and I'll gladly be your middleman!

Tammy (and other troop leaders) -- I'm compiling a list of businesses where Girl Scouts will be selling cookies so just tell me when and where, and I'll get the word out. The story will run tomorrow and again in February (closer to the first sale date) so send your info to karen@patch.com.

Hugsforsoldiers.org is accepting GirlScout Cookies until March 17th. They will ship them to our troops, if you will send them to their address in Duluth, GA. They say that this is one of the most requested items of our servicemen and women, and one of the most iconic symbols of all they are fighting, serving and sacrificing for. So, think about buying an extra box or two and send one to them and support your local 'troop' and our troops at the same time.
